playing the president as mitt romney prepares for the debate tonight. and he told cnn in an exclusive interview, it is his job to get under the candidate's skin and prepare him for the toughest attacks. portman has been the g.o.p. go-to guy for years. since 2000 he's played al gore, jon lieberman, john kerry and john edwards and now president obama. pretty malleable guy. he's reportedly been helping romney work on not getting overly defensive which is his weak point. he then tends to say things he wishes he hadn't. everyone has an opinion as to what to look for tonight. prettyies could -- politico has five things. first, can romney get aggressive without attacking. last thing he wants to do is come across snide or smug. how hard can the president push without getting too negative. he's not a big romney fan. we'll see if he can mask that true contempt. how will they handle the 47% libya, has the president had

6:14 am
think he's going to have a badminton racket he holds up? but in all honesty, mitt romney -- before like two weeks ago, three weeks ago all he had to do, people were saying this could be a preturning point. pre47 remark, prepancake pre-paul ryan saying no, it's not 47%. it's 30% of americans don't want to work and are lazy. and glom off of everybody. which, by the way, would be freeloaders -- everybody on unemployment plus 20%. so to be real clear about that. downplaying this now in the last week it's been -- if mitt doesn't deliver this is it. this is not a guy who -- can hand that will kind of pressure. >> stephanie: fortunately, he's such a natural. he's so authentic in every situation. and his wife said he's going to lose it. >> ann, how do you feel? >> stephanie: i think everything will be fine.
6:15 am
>> i worry about his mental state. >> stephanie: he may just lose his [ bleep ] that happens a lot. >> maybe it was him that crapped on the roof of the car. i've tried to figure this out. i can't get the dog. >> magic underwear is not so magic anymore. >> in all honesty like apparently there was this report that came out during the big bain board meetings, he would have a flop sweat problem. >> stephanie: like robert hayes. >> when the pressure is on. to the point where they're probably coating him with some sort of -- like a glaze to keep it in. >> i'm going to have the sad trombone effect for every time one of the zingers falls flat. >> do you think they have an electrical probe. >> so he knows when to deliver them. [ crickets chirping ] >> stephanie: or just that. [ crickets chirping ] >> i'm on fire. [ explosion ] >> yeah.
6:16 am
>> stephanie: that close. i think he is, hal he's one of those -- he gets overexcitable when he thinks it is a really good punch line and he rushes it. it is like a premature ejoke-lation. >> i heard this joke in israel. >> stephanie: i got it -- >> a pollock a brit and olympian walk -- no, no, no. zing. at some point you start saying zing. i can't remember what they are. right here -- zing. >> stephanie: actually say that was the zinger. [ crickets chirping ] >> stephanie: oh. >> mr. president, there's more where that came from. >> stephanie: take that. >> how much? >> stephanie: booyah, nothing but comedy net right? >> two pretzels were walking down the street and one had salt on it. >> zing. >> marginal tax rate should be
6:17 am
cut to 20%. >> stephanie: know when it says real comedy, call them zingers. john in las vegas. carol burnett did not say i'm glad you enjoyed my zingers. >> when she started her career in comedy, they were referred to as zingers by a minor portion of the -- guys who used to work in radio. >> like rosemarie. >> i've got a couple of zingers for you there mitt. we've got a couple of zingers for you. i wrote them down on some note cards. you can whip them out if you have a heckler. >> john, please. >> i made it up myself. >> stephanie: john in las vegas. >> caller: i didn't. to interrupt. i'm sorry. >> stephanie: that's okay. >> caller: i think the romney campaign is going to bring up this 2007 youtube video of the president the day before the debate then we could maybe bring up his religious practices and part of that is that when he dies, if he's a really good guy and he wears his magic underwear real tight and he ties

[ ♪ music ♪ ] >> seeing you fall apart it's sad and beautiful. >> stephanie: i've been watching it for 20 years now. "the stephanie miller show." welcome to it. 1-800-steph-12 toll free. i remember my first obama rally in 2008. you pretty to be a normal person and as it turns out, she wasn't. she was kerry washington. famous act receipt. famous actress. hi kerry. >> hi, stephanie. so good to talk to you. >> stephanie: you are. you're one of those who's that persons. people are like wow!
6:34 am
who's that. >> i became a forever fan at that rally. you are so smart and so hilarious and so pervy. >> stephanie: thank you. obviously people know you best. you played everybody's wife. ray charles' wife -- >> that's right. i would be both of those guys oscars by playing their wife. i'm a good luck charm. >> stephanie: exactly. and now -- maybe -- let's talk first about abc scandal is terrific. you play the head of a p.r. -- like a crisis p.r. firm, right? >> yeah. basically, the character is inspired by a real life woman named judy smith who used to work in the first bush white house. deputy press secretary. when she left, she started doing this damage control work and she's worked with everybody from monica lewinsky to michael vick. so on the show, people walk into copen and associates, the most
6:35 am
powerful people in the world. the worst day of their lives and they say fix it! and that's what we do. and it's all kind of complicated by the fact that my character used to not only work at the white house but used to have an inappropriate relationship with the president of the united states. judy did not. which judy did not. but things have been sort of hot and heavy between them and they're both trying to do the right thing but you know, there is a real connection there. it is fun. >> stephanie: you fictional little tart you. now, kerry -- >> did you not have an affair with the president or you're spinning that because you're in character? >> no, no, no. i'm always careful -- i don't want to get judy in trouble although i always have wanted to be a fly on the wall the very first time that they found the episode. how did they respond to that? >> it was right after he barfed on the japanese prime minister and there was this moment where -- >> stephanie: guessing there
6:36 am
was a frying pan involved. kerry, would your character be able to fix the mitt romney campaign? it just -- full-on crisis. >> it is so funny because there's a lot of talk on twitter about that. our show is a big social media following. we live feed every week when the show is on with the hash tag ask scandal. and my twitter is at kerry washington. we have a lot of fans on the internet. they call themselves gladiators. people are constantly tweeting me about working for mitt romney. and i guess it's not -- it's not completely out of the realm of possibility because olivia pope, the white house she worked in, was a republican white house. the president on our show is republican. and she believes in working on both sides of the aisle. >> stephanie: right. >> but she doesn't take on things that she knows she can't win. >> stephanie: right. well -- you know, for instance,
6:37 am
that 47% videotape came across your desk, you would say -- you just said to half the country [ bleep ] you? you said what? >> well also, you know the thing about olivia pope is that she doesn't take on a client who she doesn't think really genuinely wants to do the right thing. she takes on people who may have done the wrong thing. bad people sometimes do great things. but she says to someone until you're ready to be fully honest and take responsibility, i can't work with you. so you know, that all has a big question mark around whether she would work with that campaign. >> stephanie: in 2009, you were appointed by president obama to the president's committee on arts and the humanities. look at you and your fancy self. [ laughter ] >> yes. i was actually working with the white house when i got the script the first time and i thought oh my gosh, i don't know if i can do a show where
6:38 am
she's having an affair with the white house when i'm working with the white house. that seems a little too weird and the creator of the show who also created grey's anatomy and private practice said the president on our show is republican and he's white. i was like i'm in! [ laughter ] >> stephanie: well, kerry you and i were out there obviously on the trail in 2008. and you know, i love how there's all of these media story lines. there is an enthusiasm gap. i don't see it. when i've been out there it looks like the polling numbers are showing that, there's every bit as much enthusiasm for the president this time around. >> i think sometimes you know, the media is a powerful voice and sometimes there are misleading messages out there. i do think that what's important is that we not be -- i think there is a lot of enthusiasm but you know, nothing's like your first time. so i think, you know, people were voting for the first time four years ago volunteering.
6:39 am
it may seem like there an enthusiasm gap but i don't think there is. people are now engaged. they now just know it is their business and that they need to pay attention and they need to be involved. wow. it is like no, i care and i'm present. we need to make sure we stay present. >> stephanie: i was behind a car yesterday that i couldn't see the driver, there were so many obama stickers. one of every kind of obama sticker. >> interestingly enough, i've heard a lot of chatter that people who weren't enthused to vote for obama last time, either they were hillary supporters or they were just unsure about his -- the fact that he had a short term in the senate, a short term in the state senate, that kind of thing are now actually looking at his record and going he did some tough things and he's actually -- they're actually more enuse thissed this time around. legitimate. >> stephanie: now we're both. i'm an obama 2012 and a hillary 2016 supporter. so we've all managed to come together. >> totally.
6:40 am
totally. >> stephanie: kerry, look at the numbers we were just talking about. women backing obama 56% to 38%. black voters 94% to 2. hispanics, 73% to 21. >> that number blew me away! >> stephanie: the story line, he's losing white people. no. support is exactly the same as in 2008. so you know -- yeah, in the end -- seriously enough, her character, interesting that i don't -- in regard to your question earlier, i don't think she would take on mitt romney in so far as -- i need to fix this with latinos because he doesn't actually want to change it. it's all verbal. that's the problem with their campaign right now is that they think that zingers and catchphrases can turn around what everybody knows are the actual policy of the romney campaign. >> stephanie: that's it, isn't it kerry? what hal said. the 47% wasn't a gaffe. it is their -- that's their policies really. >> yeah. i mean i think you know, this
6:41 am
may seem like an awkward place to quote oprah but oprah -- when they tell you who they are listen. i think that is super important. >> stephanie: yeah. that's exactly right. and really in some ways, believe me a lot of conservatives are cheering those remarks and saying double down on them. yes. time to have this conversation. >> yeah. it is a little bit scary. i think it is part of what's so interesting about our show. i feel like at this point where we're so oversaturated with these political and diddals -- scandals film because there is no privacy anymore. the fact that you can't say anything in private. you shouldn't think at a fund-raiser you're going to say something in private but i think as a culture we so are kind of filled to the brim with scandal. and the show gives you a peek behind the curtain into how do
6:42 am
people really deal with this? when this stuff goes down, who is the person that decides what you hear about on the news? what it is that makes it into the newspaper. who blocks the bloggers? who sort of shapes the interviews on late night television? who tells the person what to wear in court to help the verdict go their way. all of that stuff. so it is actually fascinating to me to see people have such a difficult time when there are so many resources around to kind of make this work. it is amazing. it is amazing. >> stephanie: i think -- the fact that he looked so demonstrably more comfortable in that crowd. this is him in his element talking to the 1%, right? >> wow. that's a great observation. yeah, just the body language right? >> stephanie: that's what i mean. you go this isn't something he goofed. he went on and on, he expounded on his comments. kerry, what do you think with the debates? obviously, i guess chris

christie went offmessage and said it is going to be a whole new day. he wasn't playing the lowering expectation game. he thinks mitt romney is going to turn this around tonight. >> yeah. i am excited. i mean i think this is going to be great great television. i'm excited to see which version of him we get. you know. it is going to be -- it is going to be really fascinating. because i do think there is a level of -- i was saying four years ago everybody was saying how horrible and stupid sarah palin -- i think she's kind of an amazing performer. kind of. it is breathtaking. >> stephanie: that's the right word. >> so i'm interested to see what unfolds tonight for sure. >> stephanie: you know -- >> people always ask me because i'm somebody who does work with the white house what are the obamas like? what is president obama like?
6:44 am
what you see is what you get. they are the real deal. they're completely authentic. they have the country's best interests at heart. and you know, i guess it is funny to kind of know how authentic and genuine and good-spirited the white house is. the obama white house and then to work on a show where it is just like nothing but scandal and behind the scenes secrets. it really is a fictionalized version of it all. >> stephanie: i'm excited for tonight. and you know this is the president took out bin laden. i'll bet he's terrified of mitt romney's zingers don't you think? >> yeah! >> stephanie: he's been practicing zingers. >> there's no way your character would recommend zingers as a way to fix the problem. [ laughter ] >> of this magnitude. >> very classy. >> stephanie: even worse than that is letting the news leak that you've been practicing
6:45 am
zingers. for months. >> here come the zingers. >> stephanie: raising expectations game. yikes. kerry, are you going to the big obama concert this sunday? >> i'm not sure. i'm actually working on sunday so we'll see. we'll see if i can get up there or not. >> stephanie: they don't have any big names. katy perry earth wind and fire, bon jovi, jennifer hudson, don't feel bad if you miss it. >> crazy. well people are so inspired by this president and by all that he achieved. and such high stakes in this election. i think people quite honestly, i don't care which side of the aisle you're voting on just make sure you show up because i truly believe the president cares about most of this country, is president obama. so if everybody shows up and it is a fair race, we will win this race. that's what i think is so shocking about voter
6:46 am
suppression. there is one side who is saying you know what? no matter who you are everybody get out there and vote. there's another side that is trying to take away people's political voices. when one party says we believe in everybody's right to vote and another side says we'll try to make this difficult for certain people because we want to win. i want the people in the white house to believe in all of america to participate in the democracy. >> stephanie: by the way kerry, a right a lot of people have died for. >> i say that all the time because as a woman i think about susan b. anthony going to prison in petticoats and a corset sitting in a jail somewhere so that i could have the right to vote. black people who risked their lives and had buses blown up so i could exercise that right. >> stephanie: may i say one thing? corsets and petticoats, the original war on women. know what i'm saying? >> one of my favorites. >> i did this film over the summer, the new tarrant tino
6:47 am
film -- tarantino film -- it is very exciting. and i had to put on those clothes from that period and i did. no wondter took us to long to get the vote. you can barely breathe. you can't even eat in this stuff. you can't get enough oxygen to your brain that's why women were fainting all the time. >> stephanie: i don't care if i vote. my ass itches. kerry washington, star of abc's scandal. of course, the obama campaign trail. kerry, always a thrill to talk to you. thanks so much. >> thank you. so great to talk to you. thank you for all you're doing. >> stephanie: you, too. we'll talk again real soon. thanks kerry.

retirees, single moms and dads who are raising multiple kids -- >> freeloaders. >> freeloaders, right. paul ryan, this video of him talking at the annual 2011 american spectator's dinner. this is six months before the 47% -- and paul ryan says 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% wantel with fare state. before too long, we could be society a where the net majority of america are takers not makers which is an ayn rand -- by the way. all of this i distance myself baloney. he's been interjecting her ideas into every speech he has. >> stephanie: that's why the president is out there saying this. i'm sorry. no. mitt romney is trying to say this. but nobody's buying it. he has to say it. >> romney: i'm a president for 100% of the american people. not 99 versus 1. not 47 versus anyone else. i'll be a president for 100% of
6:55 am
the people. i've demonstrated that throughout my life. >> no, view. >> stephanie: the polls are showing exactly the opposite. you that is the part that drove me nuts. paul ryan said 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. so you could argue we're at a moral tipping point. okay. for the record, let's clear the decks. everybody, rich or poor, gets more from the federal government than they put in taxes because warren buffett doesn't have to suit up and go to afghanistan. you can't put a price tag on a dead soldier ultimately. you also can't put a price tag on the benefits overall for your business of the fact that there is a highway om -- system or a federal electrical grid. the idea that anybody puts a dollar in and gets a dollar back or more -- >> stephanie: he just said during a rally yesterday paul ryan the same thing. it is dividing -- he basically
6:56 am
was saying only business owners work hard and make this country grow. >> you're the only ones that get up at 5:00 a.m. only americans working hard and taking risks to make the country grow -- you know, he basically -- he was echoing the 47% remarks. here he is. >> if you have a small business, you didn't build it. >> stephanie: he didn't say that. >> all we mean is that nobody else gets up at 5:00 a.m. and opens the doors. >> what? >> nobody else works seven days a week. nobody else takes the risks. nobody else meets the payroll. nobody else goes to the bank. these are businesses that are built by the sweat and toil and hard work of workers in this country of businesses this country. that's what makes this country grow. >> hear that anybody who works at a fast food restaurant that has a manager open it up. do you think the franchise owner is getting up every day and unlocking the starbucks on every corner? >> stephanie: this is my business. i don't think i work harder because you guys have to work with me. >> half the time we're here before you are.

8:23 am
him are operating at the high levels of it. i wouldn't trust it either. >> some of them like to go skiing. >> stephanie: awesome if he were panicked into admitting that. just to be a jerk. >> what other reason is there? his big thing is oh, i'm not supposed to invest in foreign things. you can invest in foreign things but you can do it through the u.s. stock market and do it through u.s. banks. all of them have opportunities and abilities to do that. you're shuffling money to avoid -- paul ryan, for example when they're talking about these loopholes they won't close. one of the big ones is carried interest. that they're not going to allow -- they're not going to stop the carried interest. hedge fund manager, you could pretend that the money you make managing other people's money is actually investment income as opposed to income you get as a service professional. working for someone else which is exactly what it is. that it will be taxed at 35%. you're allowed to act as if it is your money being invested
8:24 am
which it is not. it is a lie! and he think -- he says that will limit capital and the growth of jobs. it is crap! these guys shave that extra money they make off and they send it to the cayman islands. they park it someplace else. it is crap. and that's why he won't say it. that's why he has to speak around it. >> stephanie: i think the president -- i'm really -- i'm unnaturally excited about tonight's debate. >> you will be drunk. >> stephanie: i'm not. political geek nirvana. 29 minutes after the hour. right back. hump days with hal on "the stephanie miller show." >> stephanie: she was eight. >> eight. >> stephanie: prime minister david cameron accidently left his daughter in a bar. >> there is a difference. >> stephanie: that's a mix up. >> she was finishing his red barrel. >> stephanie: there was a mix up after a family lunch at a publish. >> of course.

8:31 am
they just uncovered the police report which contradicts romney's version of events. the officer told him not to launch his boat. this is the story. because his license was painted over. the officer told romney if he put his boat in the water, he would face a fine. romney felt his license was visible and decided to ignore the officer and pay the fine. $50, i wipe my ass with that. >> he launched the boat even though it was the wrong thing to do. >> stephanie: the cop came and handcuffed him and took him -- >> so romney as president conceivably will do anything he wants even though it is the wrong thing to do. >> as long as he thinks it is the right thing to do. that's more important than the law. >> we've gotten into trouble with that before, haven't we? >> yeah. >> never mind the dress up like a police officer which is actually a federal crime. and pulling people over.

states can make attempts in subtle ways to cut away at the rights of women and minorities regularly without massive intervention by the federal government. it takes a lot -- >> stephanie: this is why we've been winning in the courts in and most recently in pennsylvania. did you see this in -- republican candidate posts his gun on facebook with a -- it says welcome to tennessee mr. obama. republican nominee for congress defending his message on fis -- facebook. >> i was inferring to a threat to be implied later. my foot. brad i just fing shot myself. >> stephanie: good lord, no when asked if he had threatened

8:38 am
they figured it was an easy win because it is a small state and the dollars would go further. when you're broadcasting and use offing broadcast television, you get more bang for your buck in the smaller states because you do it in montana you have to do all of the stations. >> stephanie: they're saying there are too many democrats. there's more democrats than republicans. that's why -- >> there are a lot of independents who are actual republicans who just refuse to say it because they're so embarrassed by a, mitt romney and b the bush years that if you say you're a republican, really, you voted for bush twice? >> stephanie: romney has lower approval rating than george bush now?

now i have a question. i flipped over during your last commercial break and -- over to the nice network. and people were -- they were talking about the security briefing that obama had missed over 60% of his since january. and bush had gone to all of his. >> they're still on that? oh god. >> caller: how do they know -- if it is security, they should be secure. >> stephanie: just a point of order here, we did have the worst national security failure in our history on george bush's watch. maybe he wasn't paying attention. >> a little kerfuffled. >> the president gets a briefing every single day. when he gets up in the morning that's one of the first things they do. the big sit-down where they gather it all together and do one big picture that strategy meeting can be done in washington at the pentagon or which is what they're talking about or it can be done on air force i during the -- but it --
8:40 am
>> stephanie: apparently there is technology on air force one. >> log in at the pentagon versus anywhere else. >> stephanie: i love that they make it sound like when he's on air force i he's on southwest. doesn't have access. >> they don't have wi-fi on southwest. >> reno. milwaukee. >> stephanie: brent in illinois welcome. >> caller: good morning, stephanie. i wanted to make the point that whenever somebody calls obama the welfare president, you have to realize that food stamps are really a subsidy for big agribusiness. it is not really -- it does provide an entitlement of sorts but it really makes archer daniels midland and those companies very happy. it enables them -- it is basically corporate welfare. >> right. because it guarantees food stocks in a lot of what you can get with those which is why they try to limit them by the way is stuff that's bought here.
8:41 am
corn products and the like. the list of what you're able to buy with food stamps has been narrowed to make it stuff that we can get you know, very easily. >> stephanie: brent, are you calling -- >> he's calling from space. >> stephanie: are you calling from a wind tunnel? >> caller: oh, probably. >> stephanie: 46 minutes after the hour. right back with the remaining moments of hump days with hal on "the stephanie miller show." >> the place where dreams come true. >> announcer: it's "the stephanie miller show."
